St Mark's River Trip

I floated the St. Mark's river from the H98 bridge at Newport, upstream for several hours. Davey and Ed biked down there and we met. At the newport campground we all went separate ways. After my float I ran into Julie Bowland and Lynn Preistley, plein air painters who were braving the knats at SMWR. They agreed it was too buggy this weekend.

The river dog liked this trip.

Wacissa Monday

I arrived on the river about five pm today and stayed until after eight pm hoping to see a wild turkey. Here are some of my images. It was windy and the river smelled like coffee beans....
